The Fresh Market Recipe of the Week is…

“Watermelon Basil Agua Fresca”

As we enjoy what’s left of our beautiful summer weather, watermelons have arrived at the Alpine Farmers Market.  So, what better way to savor the final tastes of summer then with a delicious, refreshing watermelon basil cooler?  We have www.theKitchn.com to thank for this amazing recipe…find the original recipe HERE.

What You Will Need and Where to Find it:
This Recipe Serves 2
  • 4 cups watermelon, cubed (Sage Mountain Farms)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 15 basil leaves or lemon basil (Rancho Chico or Sage Mountain)
  • 1/2 cup water, room temperature
  • 1 lime, juiced (Atkins Nursery)

“Place the watermelon, sugar, and 2 to 3 ice cubes in a blender. Purée until smooth. Strain the watermelon through fine-mesh strainer or cheese cloth and discard the pulp.

In a glass pitcher, combine the water, lime juice, and basil leaves. Muddle the basil against the sides of the pitcher with a spoon. Pour the watermelon into the pitcher, stir, and serve over ice. Garnish with lime and basil. (The basil garnish is the cherry on top—every sip buries your nose in the fragrant leaves.)

This keeps well in the refrigerator for a few days.”

Keep in Mind…

  • “If you love basil, add more leaves!
  • The ague fresca will separate if stored in the refrigerator. Simply stir and garnish with fresh lime.”
Enjoy!
